From tap at the Carlsbad brewpub. Pours dark brown and black with a small, tan and lasting creamy head. Hard roasted malty aroma. Flavour too is hardroasted, light coffeeish and vague dark chocolate flavoured too. Lasting roasted and dark malty flavoured into the far finish.

Draft in Carlsbad. A brown beer with a red shine. The aroma has notes of soy sauce and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of soy sauce, and caramel as well as light notes of roasted malt, leading to a soy sauce finish combined with a light note of roasted malt, reminds me of an ice cream topping.

On tap. Clear dark brown with an orange hue and a beige head. Aroma of hard roasted malts and coffee. Fairly light body, hard roasted malts with a light sweetness. Fairly discreet bitterness. 060709 JohnnyJ (5562) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 29, 2009

1st rating of this brew, shared with dalekliz at Toronado SD tonight, my night of celbration. Poured black with a tan head nitro looking, as it was nitro even though liz didn’t think so. Sweet nose sweet malt ball taste, pretty damn tasty porter. Super Smooth. Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - JUN 10, 2009
On tap at Pizza Port in Carlsbad. Pours a deep brown, almost black with a thick, insanely creamy, chalky brown head that takes forever to dissipate and actually never goes away. Lots of thick, creamy lacing. Aroma of soft, chalky chocolates and roasts with a light astringent citrus and sour cherry. Like a mix between a porter and a dry stout. Flavor is smooth and creamy, rich chocolates and dry roasts. Some sweeter malts and nice, balancing, slightly sour cherries and citrus. Very creamy, medium bodied palate that finishes smooth with a rich and sweet, soft roast aftertaste. Overall, not quite a porter, not quite a dry stout...although it leans more towards the dry stout side of things. Very tasty with lots of smooth, creamy flavor.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2009 Served nitro with no warning and we got a pitcher of it. Fuck that. Pours a nitro black with big nitro head. Semi-roasty nose with chocolate and yesterdays cold coffee. Nitro watery flat mouthfeel. Creamy chocolate milk flavors, that’s all I can taste now that my head is full of nitrogen. Gets lower scores for appearance and palate because you fucks put nitrogen in my beer without my consent. SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - JUL 8, 2009
Draught at the brewpub. Looked and felt like nitro, but I didn’t get it so I can’t be sure. Black color with a big, creamy light beige head. Somewhat muted roasted grain and light chocolate aroma. Roasty and coffee flavors, but pretty sweet with lower bitterness. Medium bodied with smooth, lower carbonation. The sweetness doesn’t show in the mouthfeel. Like liquid chocolate beer but not at all heavy. Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 26, 2009
On nitro at O’brien’s. Pours with a dark brown, thick, creamy, tan head with lots of lacing left on the glass. It’s sweet and malty with a nice roastiness, notes of coffee and cream. Medium to full bodied and smooth with some dryness.
